I suppose it's known, but there's a (still active) giveaway where I can't check any boxes, and another where only some of the boxes are checkable.
Bad giftbutt!

So you know, that's been there since day two or so. It's also fairly short, just a few hours, so it's just a small inconvenience.
Guess I logged on after it passed on previous days since I only saw it today. I think it's a good feature though, to encourage members to enter for only the prizes they really want. Maybe the cooldown period could be extended because as you said currently it's only just a minor inconvenience.

[INFO]Did you think we were finished? No! Today we have our biggest update yet, so let's get right to it. First, here are some of the fixes and tweaks we've made since the last update:
  • The "Won Giveaways" page has been adjusted so that it is now possible to select the text to conveniently copy Keys or Links.
  • The "Allow Juniors" option is now off by default. Giveaway creators are still free to toggle it as they please.
  • Most reported bugs should now be fixed.
And now some new features we think are going to knock your socks off. We're taking GiftBot's evolution to a whole new level:
  • Cancel Your Entry: Perhaps our most requested feature! If you've entered a giveaway by mistake, or have changed your mind, you now have the option to cancel your entry into that giveaway by pressing the same button.
  • GiftBot Alerts Options: On the Preferences page users now have the option to enable or disable Alerts and Push Notifications for GiftBot related functions.
  • Entered Giveaways Tab: You can now track which giveaways you're currently entered into by checking the new "Entered Giveaways" tab on the giveaways page.
  • Captcha Protection: An advanced captcha has now been added to the giveaway entry dialogue to further deter exploitation by scripts or bots.
  • Display Number of Entrants for Each Prize: New giveaways from now on will display the total number of current entrants next to each prize on offer. That number will update automatically with each refresh. Giveaway creators have the option to disable this if they so choose.
  • Threadmarks Integration: We've proven how much generosity there is on ResetEra -- so much that we need a better way to organize and track it! From now on, by default, all giveaways will be automatically threadmarked and sorted into a unique threadmark category (Giveaways) located in the same place that Staff Posts and normal Threadmarks are found. Select "Reader Mode" from that dropdown and you can view all of the giveaways at once! Giveaway creators can choose to opt out of this.
This thread has shown why you guys deserve the best, and we've done all we can to deliver.[/INFO]
Definitely love the new features.

I won a code for Alien Isolation, but when I click on it, it says it was already redeemed. Anyone else have this problem?

a) Could be GiftBot error, there used to be a bug for a brief time where win messages were sent to multiple people.
b) Could be unintentional error from the creator, not knowing or remembering the code was used. It happens some times.

Either way, you're out of luck.

That maybe why I couldn't activate it either. Thanks for the info.
Typically the keys can still be activated after a game has been delisted. Though if the key was from when Humble Bundle gave them out for free, those have expired.

Staab , were you able to activate the GRID 2 key from my giveaway? That one was from the Humble Jumbo Bundle #3.
Nope, I gifted Grid 2 and two DLC codes earlier in this thread and all three keys worked.

By the way, I got those from HB for free so the expiration thing on their website is irrelevant.

Those keys are most likely region-locked so gift them if you have one that doesn't work for you ;)

The issues preventing users from entering some giveaways should now be fixed -- thanks for your patience.

We've also updated how the captcha works. It should now only appear when a user has entered 2 giveaways within the past 12 hours.
